On the other side of the studio…

I thought I would share with you the work of my studio mate, Jessica Howarth. Jess and I met at art college and have been sharing a studio at Arts Complex in Meadowbank since September. We both work with kilns, and both glass to an extent, only Jess works with enamel (very finely ground glass), and metal. She gradually builds up layers of coloured enamel onto copper or silver, patiently fusing layer after layer onto the base in a kiln. The ‘houses’ in the pictures are her degree show work, 3D Structures of enamelled copper, with various pieces of wearable jewellery hidden within.

Here are some more images, enjoy!

You can follow Jess on Facebook , Twitter , she has a lovely blog too, and a tumblr page



Revisiting Japanese Inspiration

I am planning a day of tea and sketchbooking tomorrow, a lovely day off!

A while ago…maybe 2 years…I did a project at college inspired by Japanese Haiku and Haiga. I think this is something I am definitely going to revisit tomorrow. I have been on Pinterest ‘pinning’ some potential sketchbook worthy images. What do you think?



Have a good weekend!
